Tendu White WineMADE BY MATTHIASSON WINE IN NAPA, CALIFORNIA
Stephen Matthiasson might be best known for complex, innovative reds, but that only made us more excited to try this approachable, exciting white now in its second vintage.
The wine is made mostly from Vermentino (a traditional Italian varietal) with a little Colombard and Chardonnay thrown in the mix – all grown with organic practices California. We were already fans of Vermentino, and we're obsessed with this zingy and refreshing interpretation, full of bright citrus and herbal notes to go alongside ripe pear.
Tip of the Tongue
Serve this light, bright wine with all your favorite salads. Just be careful – lemon juice and vinegar almost always clash with wine. (We love making a vinaigrette with verjus, pressed unripe grape juice, rather than vinegar. But we digress.)
75% Vermentino; 20% French Colombard; 5% Chardonnay; 12.2% alcohol by volume; comes in a 1 liter bottle.
